With the cold weather in our midst, I've had to let go of putting flowers in my hair, at least for a few months. But I wanted to have a fall back plan that was a bit more season appropriate, yet still had a bohemian feel to it. Take a look below to see how I created this look.
1// Begin by parting your hair down the middle.
2// To create the braids, take a small section on one side of your part. Take the chain and with a bobby pin, attach it to the top of the section. To make the braiding easier, leave a little bit of extra chain at the top so that it doesn't slide out of the bobbypin. Start braiding with two strands of hair and the chain as a substitution for the other strand. Once you're about halfway through the braid, pull the chain down so that the end near the top of the section becomes hidden behind the other strands. Once you've braided all the way down, secure it with a hairband. Repeat this on the opposite side.
3// Next, take these two strands, and attach them together at the back of your head with a hair band. Once they are attached together, remove the other hair bands that were holding the braid together.
4// Then, curl your hair in large sections. I divided mine into four separate sections. You can judge how many sections you'll need to curl depending on the thickness of your hair.
5// Next, take the brush and begin teasing the curls. Once you've given them great volume, carefully brush them out, creating loose, untamed waves.
6// As needed, apply hair spray for an extra hold.
7// Lastly, add a bit more volume by scrunching your hair after you've applied the hair spray.
I really think I've adopted this as my new, winter look; particularly to dress up my outfit on those extra cold days, when all I want to do is wear an over-sized sweatshirt and jeans. Uh oh.
